Bulgogi (Korean Beef)

Is it just me or is Korean food trending, now? It’s hard to tell sometimes because when I crave sumpin’, I seem to see it everywhere! I’m blaming Momofuku.

Harvest Wild Rice Salad with Oranges, apples & pears & a citrus vinaigrette

I recently made the Stuffed Chicken Roast from Better Home & Garden’s December 2015 issue – I couldn’t help but be inspired by their Harvest Wild Rice Salad, served alongside. Gorgeous greens, wild rice and a citrus dressing caught my eye. Toss in a few apples, pears and toasted pecans and sprinkle on a few dried cranberries or cherries and you have a salad!

Apple Crisp is American as Apple Pie, but fruit crisps are so good with many fruits or combinations. I’ve been making variations with this simple recipe for years –¬†so easy it’s almost a non-recipe. Don’t let that fool ya, though, these crisps are always beautiful, brimming with fresh fruit flavor.

I have some friends who always make marvelous salads to go with their dinners and that’s where I was first introduced to Harvest Salad. It’s so nice to have a glorious salad at a dinner party. It’s not only delish and brings a special touch, but I think it makes your guests feel pampered. Of course, I got the recipe, but over time I mixed it up just a bit into this Healthy Harvest Salad.
